Season 18 is over, and the Season of Eternal Conflict is soon to arrive. Though there has been no official release date given, the average timeline means that we'll likely see the release before the end of November. \n \nThe last hurdle was just passed with the pre-season patch, patch 2.6.7. Blizzard is finetuning a few things after feedback from last season, as well as adding in a few things to make sure the Season of Eternal Conflict is a hit. \n \n \n \nFor starters, Pandemonium is coming to Diablo. The season buff for the Season of Eternal Conflict will be Pandemonium, which causes radical and scaling effects in accordance with killstreaks. To quote the developer's note: "With Season 19, we've altered course as well as upped the ante by experimenting with new mechanics to add an element of both chaos and power to the battlefield. Killstreaks with higher kill count requirements are more powerful, and we're looking forward to seeing what players think of and do with them!" \n \nThe Pandemonium buff stacks for as long as you've hit or killed a monster within the last five seconds. Each stack also gives .005 movement speed and .001% bonus damage, stacking up to 1,000 stacks with 50% movement and 100% damage. In terms of the powers that unleash with the killstreak count, the list is as follows: \n \n \t15 Kills: Exploding Chickens seek and destroy \n \t30 Kills: A wide Frost Nova freezes enemies \n \t50 Kills: Corpses rain from the sky \n \t100 Kills: Five massive energy twisters are unleashed \n \t150 Kills: Dark Geysers form beneath enemies \n \t200 Kills: Treasure chests fall from the sky \n \t300 Kills: A ring of fire engulfs everything \n \t400 Kills: Meteors hail from above \n \t500 Kills: Angels descend upon the battlefield to fight for your cause \n \t1,000 Kills: ??? \n \nThere's a number of wonderful side effects that may come from this. Will necromancers be able to utilize the corpses raining from the sky at 50 kills, or is this a flavor effect? Will sorcerer's abilities buff the meteors and energy twisters? \n \nOther than the Season buff, there are some other minor changes. Two new rewards are coming to those that completely finish the Season Journey: the Angelic Treasure Goblin pet and the Valor Portrait Frame. \n \nFor those that purchased a virtual ticket to this year's Blizzcon, an exclusive pair of cosmetic wings are also being added, called Lilith's Embrace. An image of these haven't been released yet, but they're certain to be delightfully demonic. \n \nThe Season of Eternal Conflict will be landing soon. With the Pandemonium buff, the Nephalem will be well-equipped to wrack up a body count.
